A Little Prehistory

Spinosaurus, a photo by The Gonk on Flickr.
Here's the latest state of Number One Son's Spinosaurus. Last night we glued it down on a plasticard base and covered that with Liquitex Ceramic Stucco. That basically an untinted "flocking gel." I use it a lot on my bases. He's pretty exited about it and kept want to make fancy bases, but dour Daddy dissuaded him from anything too advanced. Although, it's not too late to put some interesting stuff on there.
I also converted a couple of non-warrior Neanderthals I bought at Historicon into firestarters for Tusk. The brass wire will be flaming branches when I'm done. The one on the right already has a stack of firewood in his arms and was natural for this. The one on the left was shaking out a fur and is either a little chubby or slightly won't be noticeable once they're painted.



  1. N1S's Spinosaurus is really nice. My daughter simply loves all things dinosaur and once she's a little bit older (currently 6) if the craze carries on, I will definitely consider getting some of those Primeval Designs creatures for her. Of course, if a dark age building or two happened to slip into the order...

  2. There's definitely evidence in the Geo-archaeological record that the Vikings routinely fought dinosaurs.

    Looks good Andy, and nice to see you're finally admitting to being dour. That's the first step man...
